The European Social Survey measures the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns of diverse populations in more than 25 countries. Every two years, face-to-face interviews are conducted with newly selected, cross-sectional samples. The objective of the study is to offer researchers, policy makers and the public the highest quality survey data that is comparable across countries and time.

More than 3,000 households were selected to take part in round 9 of the study in Ireland in 2018-19. This sample was selected by scientific methods to generate a representative picture of people living in the country.  The Irish survey is supported by the Irish Research Council.
